heart on your sleeve

I created these heart sleeves for the winter issue of Glitter and Grunge- a new *in print* Zine produced by Mindy Tsonas. It's a swift little project that will keep you or someone you love cozy and makes a perfect Valentine's Day gift too. You can find the instructions and lots more within the pages of G & G, but if you've ever worked with felted sweaters... it's pretty self-explanatory...
A large heart is placed on the top of the hand... to wear your heart on your sleeve, of course.  A tinier one is placed on the opposite hand- in the center of your palm. You never know when you'll need an extra handful of love... to offer someone or to give yourself. So nice to have it "handy"!

 I've been doing some early spring cleaning here at maya*made. A new header, and Published page were long over due, so was a streamlined sidebar. So good to start the week fresh and check off something that's been on my to-do list for an embarrassingly long time. Do you have something that you keep putting on the back-burner? Here's a little epiphany I had, as I tweaked and straightened up my site... whatever we keep putting off looms larger the longer it sits waiting for us. Maybe it really won't be so hard, or take so long, or be so trickly once we tackle it. Hope you manage to cross off a good one this week, too!

  2. Sweet sleeves! I think that my whole family could benefit from these to get us through the remaining days of winter. Actually, I think a heart strategically placed and not too big could be sweet on a pair of sleeves for my husband. Maybe an anatomically correct heart? Thanks for another great idea, Maya. I'm looking forward to reading through your published tab soon too.

  4. Sweet sleeves, oh and a heart is so sweet anytime. And colour, I'm so desperate to see colour these days, even if it's just heart red here and there.
    I totally agree about the things that grow bigger and bigger in mind, just because they don't get done. This pre-spring mood is so refreshing. Checking things off the list that have been there foreverforever is so so good.
    Love, Frl. Rucksack.

  6. These are very sweet. I was thinking that I have a long pair of smart wool socks that have holes in the toes and heel. They might work for something like this. I might fiddle with it!
